AP Racing Set to Debut as NASCAR Next Gen Brake Supplier

AP Racing is set to make its debut as the sole brake system supplier for the NASCAR Next Gen Cup Series car, the company announced.

AP Racing’s brake system will make its debut at a pre-season exhibition race at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Feb. 6.

For the Next Gen car, AP Racing has utilized its Radi-CAL caliper design philosophy, combined with its advanced forged aluminum process, to deliver 6 and 4 piston monobloc brake calipers, the company said, and has also introduced a new direct drive brake rotor configuration into the series. This allows teams to use the same rotors for multiple events.

In addition, the company has been able to supply a brake system that uses the same front and rear calipers for all tracks, with only two rotor options for heavy and light duty brake scenarios – thus further reducing costs for teams. The actuation side of the brake system is controlled by the new AP Racing pedal box, which incorporates both forged and billet components and uses the latest pull type AP Racing master cylinders.

“We’re hugely excited for the debut of the Next Gen car this month. I’m immensely proud to say we are now the sole brake system supplier and its testament to our unrivalled expertise in serving one-make racing series that puts us in pole position,” said Richard Gregory, head of Sales at AP Racing. “Not only do we have the technology, but we are able to guarantee the level of supply required thanks to the dedication of our project team and working tirelessly with our exclusive US distribution partner, Essex Parts Services, to ensure continuity of supply.”
